What you'll do

Covid Clear County! NO MASK REQUIRED!
You'll start with a blank canvas, and in the end you'll have a happy little painting. We go over everything from how to add the liquid white, to signing your signature. You will use the Bob Ross supplies that are provided for you. We only use the Bob Ross oil paints and his signature big 2" brush (the little ones too!) You need not bring anything but a snack, a soda or two, and your happy smile. You will learn how to hold the brushes properly, how to load the brushes with paint, and how to apply the loaded brush to the canvas to get your desired effect. You will learned the how's and why's of making this wet-on-wet technique flow from your fingertips - well at lest make a grand effort for your first painting. You will find this , fun, entertaining and educational. Class is set at 2.5 hours but for one or two students in a class you could be done quicker, if four or more in a class it may run longer. Also if you have an idea of what you would like to paint, please Let me know a few days ahead so I can plan it out.
Other things to note
Remember we are working with oil paints an it may not come out of clothes. Ware something you don't mind getting paint on.
Paintings will NOT be dry when you leave. I have a few options to help

My name is Hope Blakely, and I love being creative. I have many outlets, sewing, baking, cake decorating, and in 2017 I went to a class in Florida to become a CRI - what's this? A Certified Ross Instructor! I started watching as a child, then 2012 I needed a new hobby and up pops Bob on the TV, I was hooked. So when I found out about the classes to become an instructor it did not take much convincing to get me to go. I still do all that other stuff but the most fun I have is teaching others the ways of Bob. I go over the canvas from start to finish. Happy Clouds, Happy trees, Happy Painting!!!

Written by Krystian I wore my favorite Bob Ross shirt for this class and was excited beyond belief. We got a warm welcome and a nice introduction to the class. Hope showed several paintings and shared stories. During the class she was very informative and also explained techniques for me as left handed student. Hope was gentle, showed techniques clearly and gave you confidence with making your decision in your painting. If she saw you struggling she would help with by drawing on her painting. Highly recommend the class. We even took a picture of a Bob Ross cutout with our paintings. 11/10

Fun opportunity to create your own "pretty little trees." This is a great, inexpensive way to dip your toes into the sometimes intimidating world of oil painting, and leave with a surprisingly effective landscape. It's also just a lot of fun.

My family and I had a wonderful time painting with Hope. She was such fun to be around and made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable as we are new to painting. In true Bob Ross style, it was very relaxing and there were lots of smiles and laughs. I highly recommend!!

This was awesome! If you are debating this, do it! She works with you step by step, but it is not too slow where you get bored. She’s so kind and hospitable as well. Would definitely recommend to everyone.
